Yes! You may have missed an epic night at Live Lounge if you weren’t present last Thursday, but guess what?
There are many more epic nights in store!
It’s throwback Thursday and our lifestyle editor is wasting no time in recapping the stunning events you may have missed out on
The Live Lounge X Alternative Sound event was held on Thursday 26th November 2020.
Here is why you missed out if you weren’t present;
Live Lounge (in my opinion, as well as many other spots that opened up within this pandemic year, and thus received little traffic)
is still one of the most novel spots in Victoria Island.
Last Thursday, the foremost jazz lounge in Nigeria welcomed THE ALTERNATE SOUND band members to its stage and opened its doors to The Who Is Who of Lagos
If you missed out, I’m spilling all the details on what to expect should you end up visiting the space again.
The Live Lounge VIP Experience
Firstly, the VIP experience!
If you were attending last week’s event, you must have RSVPed prior.
This enables you to receive that elevated VIP reception, deserving of the star that you are!
As soon as you enter through the gates, you’re sucked into a sanctuary for music, culture, and interior alike.
The decor is simply divine and the seating plan, quite apt!
There are plush chairs situated in different corners and crevices of the room
Then there are a few charming booths where you could huddle with your best mates to listen to beats and enjoy a good goss 🙂
or even the sofas situated by rustic walls, where you clink whiskey glasses whilst smoking cigars.
And if you’re more of an outdoors person, enjoy the boho-chic outdoor spaces;
And don’t forget, there’s enough space for any of the bamboo chaises to gladly sit you and yours whilst you enjoy the cool Victoria Island breeze.
Waiters are situated both in and outside the establishment to help serve you better.

Stocked to the brim yet tastefully arranged with all your favourite liquor brands.
One entertaining aspect you can’t miss at the bar is that- every five to ten seconds you must witness at least one of the bartenders,
shaking and stirring up magic combos with fluid skill and precision.
These skilled bartenders were trained by the queen of cocktails herself, Wendy
If you haven’t heard of ALTERNATIVE SOUND, you need to get with the programme ASAP
This band had the energy of gods; they kept that same level from the onset and throughout their performance
As for those in attendance,
when I said the room was filled with the Lagos who is who, I meant it
this also includes your celebrity faves.
(Last Thursday also marked the birthday of Mavin Music Head, Don Jazzy so he was out and about with the crew)
Our Head of Strategy and Partnerships cooling it off with the crew.
Our August 2020 Cover star was spotted looking as stunning as ever, alongside
who couldn’t stop bopping to the beats of The Altérnate Sound crew
was also present
Fashion-forward as ever with his electric blue hair.
